The Lyrics

Felt like making another tribute to one of my favourite Internet memes. While the Downfall meme originally poked fun at popular culture and current events through spoof commentaries, it since evolved into a subculture and universe of its own with a recurring fan canon and characters juxtaposed from many different series.
Hitler's mad ranting and Fegelein's cool antics
Spoofs of the movie from Downfall fanatics
Stalin, Gaddaffi - hilarity brings
These are the joys when I'm Unterganging

Khaki-clad Goebbels and map pointing cretins*
Look at Herr Burgdorf, the vodka he's drinking**
Rages that fly over various things
These are the joys when I'm Unterganging

Little miss Kittredge and seafaring Werner***
Spinoffs that spawn way beyond the old bunker
Bald-headed Jodl who likes objecting
These are the joys when I'm Unterganging

When Adolf rants
Epic lulz springs
Boy, those spoofs are rad
I ROFL real hard at all Unterganging
And then I don't feel so bad
* - Hans Krebs, to be exact. The parodies depict him as having a fetish for maps.

** - Wilhelm Burgdorf, being portrayed as an alcoholic both in the film and the parodies that came after it.

*** - Kit Kittredge and Lt. Werner from the American Girl and Das Boot movies, respectively.

Have you ever seen the original "Untergang" parody called "Real Estate Downfall"? The video starts out with "the housing bubble bursts on a speculator" and since it was the first of its kind, the viewer wasn't aware that they were about to see Adolf Hitler in his bunker, going off on an epic rant; so the comedic effect was astounding. It's also one of the best written of the Hitler memes and of course it was completely original -- as opposed to the thousandth one, which is getting a tad derivative.

It wasn't really the first afaik. "La Caida (La versiĆ³n No Oficial)" was the earliest extant parody uploaded on YouTube, followed by Mein Kampf um Mathilde and Sim Heil. The Xbox Live Parody brought the meme into mainstream attention, though. Most of the newer parodies are getting cliche, I agree, although Untergangers have started to make use of CGI and special FX in their parodies.

Clever parody in its own right. I love all those Downfall parodies. Even Bruno Ganz (Hitler) regards them as a homage to his performance, which was outstanding to say the least. I wonder how many of those viewers have watched the whole brilliant movie.

I did, LL!! I saw Downfall years before these parodies came out so I knew, the first time out, exactly what was being spoofed. And you are correct about Ganz; his performance made the whole thing possible. Nobody else had ever come close to capturing the essence of Hitler like he did
